AMSSponsored Lectures at SIAM Meetings  presented at SIAM Annual Meetings

Arnold Ross Lectures  series of lectures given annually in different parts of the country for talented high school mathematics students. These lectures are intended to illustrate some recent development in mathematical research.and stimulate learning outside the classroom.

Colloquium Lectures  series of three lectures held on consecutive days during the Joint Mathematics Meetings.

Current Events Bulletin Lectures  presented at the Joint Mathematics Meetings. Speakers do not report on their own work; they survey some of the most interesting current developments in pure and applied mathematics.

Einstein Public Lectures in Mathematics  given annually by distinguished mathematicians at one of the eight sectional meetings.

Erdős Memorial Lectures  annual invited addresses named for the prolific mathematician Paul Erdős and given at one of the eight sectional meetings.

Gibbs Lectures  public lectures given at the Joint Mathematics Meetings that are intended to enlighten the public about different aspects of mathematics and its applications.

Maclaurin Lectureship  a reciprocal exchange between the New Zealand Mathematical Society and American Mathematical Society. A New Zealand and a United Statesbased mathematician will tour each other's countries on alternate years, with the lecturers to be chosen by both societies.
